Let’s celebrate with a giveaway…

1 Year, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days – whatever way you look at it, it has been lots of fun and so rewarding…………yes, it has been hard work at times but good hard work!  And as an added bonus I’ve met so many great people.  So thank-you to each and every one of you – to all those who have helped out in numerous ways, to all the lovely guests (and for your encouraging feedback) and for those of you who read this blog (especially the fantastic people who take the time to leave me comments!)

Let’s celebrate with a giveaway!  It will work in a similar way to this one and I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say it was lots of fun.

If you would like to come and spend a day crafting at Sewjourn with some other creative souls just leave me a comment on this post and I’ll pop you into the draw.  If you have a blog and mention this giveaway let me know and you’ll gain a second entry into the draw.  The four winners will get to come along, with a friend, to relax, create and enjoy for the day on Saturday 30th January 2010.   Please leave your comments by 8pm (AEST) Sunday 5th September and I’ll post the winners on Monday 6th.  Good Luck!!!


studio at Sewjourn by you.

The Studio. This is where you could spend the last Saturday in January….

PS  If you want to see some great photos of Sewjourn go to flick.com and search for Sewjourn – the amazing ladies were retreating this past weekend take the most awesome shots…….I’d like to think if we upgraded our camera we could do the same but I think there’s a bit more to it than that…..!

    Oh boy, oh boy – count me IN! Oops, please ;). I also have a blog where this giveaway shall be duly mentioned – guess that gives me two! Thank you XXOO

  6. MissyP Says:

    Aww, darn – I have just realised I couldn’t go even if I did happen to win! However, I shall still mention it on my blog all the same. And, I apologise for being so rude on my last visit by neglecting to wish Sewjourn a very happy birthday, and to congratulate you on a successful first year in business!

    I would love to come again to Sewjourn – It’s was heaps of fun last time. I’m sure i could twist Ric Rac’s arm to come with me.

  8. RomaC Says:

    Oh WOW…what bliss that would be….a crafty day spend spent creating with a new project or finishing a UFO in the company of like minded people. I hope this 1st birthday is just the start of many, many more to come. Congratulations.

    PS..I would love to post a notice but I am relatively new to blogging and haven’t even got my craft blog up and running yet. I am currently very focused on my garden renovation… when the weather warms up my sewing room is on the agenda as will be a sewing blog. I will enjoy keeping an eye on what is happening up your way. Ciao.

    Well your fame is spreading far and wide… and whether I win this or not, I’ll be pulling out all stops to get some crafty retreat time at Sewjourn before your second birthday.

  16. Cat Says:

    Ooo, please put me in the draw, how amazing! Thanks

  17. Gaby Says:

    Haooy Birthday, even if I am too late for the draw.

  18. Elizabeth Says:

    Happy birthday Sewjourn! Very selfishly I hope I’m not too late for the giveaway, because if I do not go into the draw I will be doomed to lurk on craftblogs forever, too scared ever to finish anyhting Because It Just Doesn’t Look As Good As Theirs. But if I go into the draw, the random number generator might choose me, and then I would have no excuse, I would have to craft something. And it might even look OK.
